American Babe is a fake memoir written by a three person writing team (one woman and two men). Babe Walker is the nom-de-plume for David Oliver Cohen, Tanner Cohen, and Lara Schoenhals; they are actors and writers who live in both New York and LA. Their White Girl Problems series is snarky satire that pokes fun at the out-of-touch rich and famous. The character Babe Walker represents the stereotypical wealthy, skinny-obsessed, tacky reality television celebrity. Apparently, the character was originally created on Twitter, and the popularity of the Twitter character led to the White Girl Problems series. Babe Walker is a bit less vapid in American Babe since her dead-beat, biological mother’s family deals her a healthy dose of reality. While she is not totally appreciated by the family, they understand that some of Babe’s problem is the result of being abandoned by her biological mom. Staying true to herself, she is demanding and mostly self-centered. Her foul mouth is a little much to take (both to her fictional family and to this reader). The overuse of f-bombs quickly detracted from the humor for me even if it was supposed to be characteristic of Babe Walker. I did appreciate the satire, but I didn’t find it to be hilarious or poignant. American Babe is a very quick, lightweight read that is mildly entertaining. It is just an okay read for me, although I can see fans of certain reality TV shows enjoying American Babe more. I am a sucker for a happy ending though, and Babe gets hers.
